These photos were all taken during my 1985 visits to Peru. For background on Bolivian radio see the Peru Menu at Patepluma Radio.
In the 1980s and into the early 1990s, Radio Ilucan was commonly heard on 5617 kHz shortwave. Listeing in Honduras, I discovered the station and first reported it to the hobby press. Here is a recording I made in Honduras: Radio Ilucan MP3Me (left) with staff members.
La Voz de Cutervo was on shortwave for several years in the mid-1980s. It was the feature of my article on broadcasting in Cutervo in the 1989 Passport to World Band Radio.4320 x 6416 pixel version (4.6 MB)
Radio Chota was well heard for many years in the 1980s on 6296 kHz. They were not as easily heard after they switched to 4890 kHz. Radio Chota was the first radio station in their town and, although no longer on SW, they continue to broadcast on MW, FM, and via the Internet. They sometimes broadcast live videos on the Radio Chota Facebook Page.4320 x 6416 pixel version (4.2 MB)
This station was on shortwave off-and-on in the mid-1980s. The display cases had letters from overseas listeners.3550 x 2400 pixel version (1.2 MB)
This station was briefly on the air on 4485 kHz around 1985. When I visited they were closed because of technical issues. I was told that the owner had gone to Lima to buy a new tube. I'm not sure if they later came back on or not, but I believe the transmitter was later sold and another station appeared on their old frequency.
